American Scientist Pizza Lunches are informal lectures where scientists present new research to an audience of non-scientists. The talks are hosted at the headquarters of Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, publisher of American Scientist magazine, in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
Originally intended to help inform local science communicators about current and controversial topics, the Pizza Lunch talks are now available to anyone online, and new talks are posted periodically during the academic year.
